PDP denies giving pastors N6bn bribe to campaign against Buhari

The National leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has denied giving N6bn bribe to some Christian leaders for the purpose of helping President Goodluck Jonathan win the February 14 presidential election.

The PDP's National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Olisa Metuh, who spoke at a press briefing in Abuja today, said the party was alarmed about the allegation which was made by the Director General of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi.

Amaechi, who is also the Governor of Rivers State, had accused the ruling party of giving the bribe to a group of clergymen to campaign against the presidential candidate of the APC, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).

Metuh said, "Pastors are revered people and to bring their character into disrepute is a sin before God. We do not think anybody, not to talk of somebody who is a Christian, can make such statement.

"We challenge the Director General of APC to name such pastors and where the money is coming from.

"This attack is capable of bringing Christians and Muslims into a major disagreement and major dispute. If truly the person who issued this statement is a Catholic as he said, we are asking him to go for confession."
